*This* Is Why We Released LH to Developers Early

Marc Clifton, a concerned 3rd party, provides thoughtful criticism of XAML.

Chris Anderson, Avalon Architect, takes Marc’s criticism and provides a thoughtful response.

Because of where we are in the Longhorn release cycle, i.e. a long way from a release, if the Avalon team agrees with Marc, they can make real changes.

As a result, Longhorn gets better because it’s able to accept early, critical feedback. Perfect.
